I think the guy that tackled him should be signed, and the guy that stole the ball should too...  That guy seemed to hold the ball after a savage hit, and the security that tackled him really wrapped up nice...  Both should be proud.

The two that ran into one another...  Well, I hear Cincy, Cleveland, and Detroit are all looking for some new guys in the secondary I guess.

I don't follow the Steelers so..... does Harrison do things like he did in the Super Bowl a lot? If not I feel JediJman is being a little over critical of Harrison as a whole based off one questionable violent moment.

If you've discussed this already, don't answer, you two's posts are too long and I don't care enough so I haven't read them all the way through.

NICK.  We just moved past the whole Harrison thing.  I don't follow the Steelers, nor do I have a tally of the number of jerk moves he's made on other guys.  Maybe he has two and maybe he has 100.  How would you count them up?  Look at the debate over just this one action let alone others.  What number of similar violent actions would satisfy you?

In my own opinion, he was way too rough with Francisco for no reason.  It's one thing to get mad and hit or push a guy, but it's quite another to keep going after him once he's down and not fighting back.  If you look at the way he whipped that drunk in Cleveland, that seems overly aggressive to me to - maybe not to some others.  I don't know Harrison personally and I'm not going to waste time looking up more of his plays, but the guy seems to enjoy beating up on people based on these two instances.  It's been my experience that people who can't control their anger are repeat offenders, but I don't need a count on that to make up my own mind that he's a thug. 

By the way, there are a lot of interesting quotes online from Francisco about the play.  He says he had the urge to fight back, but held his anger in check becasue it knew it might hurt their chances of winning the big game.  Chew this over - had the refs decided that Harrison's actions occurred a second sooner, Arizona would have had a first down with a strong likelyhood of scoring AND cutting more time off the clock later in the game.  Harrison could have very easily cost his team the game and has to know that, yet he still went after Francisco.  If that's not evidence of anger management issues, I don't know what is.
